Pours a hazy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma is fruit, citrus and tart. Taste is kind of fruity and tart. Kind of disappointing.

popephred (261) - Plainfield, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Poured from the bottle into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. The pour produced a hazy, amber body with a quickly diminishing head of white foam. The aroma is rife with raspberries and wheat. Carbonation was crisp and the mouthfeel was watery. The palate was dry and bland, with none of the raspberry notes coming through. The aroma gave a great deal of promise (where I almost expected a lambic) but was disappointed by the lack of substance this malt beverage provides. Not horrible, but watery and bland.

1st impression not good. Calls itself a malt beverage with raspberry added. 355ml bottle into glass. Slight fruit nose, not bad. Looks great, creamy head, cloudy amber beer. Tastes like good malt with strong clean Raspberry/hop finish. Not amazing but seems very sessionable.

This beer drinks real easy, especially itís the first one of the night. Light wheaty flavor with fruity notes.

ordybill (161) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- has a fruit aroma that is not overpowering, fairly inviting. Appearance- the beer is an amber color with an average head Taste-has a muted fruit flavor, but i do not care for the taste of this beer. Palate- this is a thin bodied beer with light carbonation. Overall- I do not care for this at all and I do like fruit beers overall.

People are pretty rough on this one. Reasonably refreshing wheat beer with some tasty sweet raspberry inside. No itís not going to knock your socks off, but itís plenty more drinkable and pleasant than some of the garbage out there pawned off as "complex".

KeefOz (991) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - NOV 22, 2014
BB 29/7/15. Poured a cloudy amber colour with a two-finger white frothy head that diminished quickly to virtually nothing. No lace. Aroma initially of sourish malt with a hint of possibly fruit; no obvious hops. Taste tarty to start with but sweet raspberry fruit came through as it warmed. Light body. Bit of a spicy finish that got sweeter as it warmed.

Raspberries come through early on nose and first taste. Bit watery and easy on mouthfeel. Can see it living up as fruit beer. Light. 1.3std drinks, 12oz, 4.2%. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just a woeful attempt at making a grape driven beer, so disorientated and the flavours are muddled.
